Along Came a Spider
- 1 hr 43 min
Although she was under the protection of the secret service, the daughter of Senator Rose is still subject to being violated, and in fact does fall victim to the sadistic rituals of a kidnapper. The senator's daughter is kidnapped from the school, and Jezzie Flannigan, played by Monica Potter is supposed to be on the job. The senator's daughter usually has a secret service detail around her, making it a bit more challenging to be removed from the premises, however everyone is lost as to the ease of this local criminal's ability to take her away from her family. After an undercover operation goes terribly wrong, detective Alex Cross (played by Morgan Freeman) has lost his confidence, in fact he is quite content to stay out of the field altogether. When a senator's daughter is involved in a kidnapping, Alex is called in to help solve the mystery of a lost child. The kidnapper appears to be wearing a mask of some sort, and although the secret service appeared to be doing their jobs, the deception was clearly too much for them. The senator's daughter was removed from the premises by way of a "dummy" desk that looked like a few hard drives. In the meantime, Alex is trying to forgive himself for his shortcomings, by losing himself with the building of model ships. Alex Cross cannot stay on the sidelines, because the kidnapper is interested in including him in the equation, and he is not prepared to take no for an answer. Gary Soneji is the kidnapper (played by Michael Wincott) and he is the one who removed the child from the school premises and from all appearances, he has a second agenda on his mind. Written by James Patterson, this mystery is directed by Lee Tamahori and has supporting roles by Ollie McArthur, played by Dylan Baker, Megan Rose as Mika Boorem.
